Where Does Texas Drinking Water Come From?

Water is a fundamental part of life for humans, animals, and plants. According to the Mayo Clinic, adults need between 11-16 cups of fluid each day and only 20% of that comes from food. The other 80% comes from beverages, including drinking water. The first week of May is Drinking Water Week, so we’re taking the opportunity to shine some light on the importance of drinking water, how drinking water arrives at the tap, and how we can conserve water.
